Crafts Using Rocks Rock!

I was browsing Martha Stewart's craft site and these cute rocks caught my eye... How cute are these rocks below?! I have to admit, I've never really thought of rocks as being cute but these definitely are and how expensive is a rock??? I think they are pretty impressive so I wanted to share them on my blog today.   It also made me curious about what other decorated rocks out there... and I found LOTS of very cute rocks! Here are a few of my favorites......................

@Martha Stewart.Com
I love how they spelled out the title of the article with the rocks.. too cute! Be sure to check out Martha's link for even more cute rocks.

@Fab Mums

Check out these cute lady bugs.. wouldn't they be cute placed in your flower beds or even in the pots of your inside plants? Go to the link for the how-to.

@Deep Into the Darkness Peering
I had to share these beautiful rocks...I am amazed at the detailed painting on these rocks.  I wish I could paint like on the link to see more.

@red bird crafts
Look at these cute fabric hearts mod podged onto rocks! This would make a fun craft for kids! Be sure to check out the link to see the other love message rocks and she shares how they were made too!

I can not help but fall in love with these cute painted bird rocks.. they are so cheery and cute! They are called 'Pet Rocks' and these too are great for kids! Go to the link for the how-to.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today.... I think these rocks are great for a budget craft choice.

DIY Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Baby Burping Towels Bouquet @ The Craft Patch
I ran across these super cute bouquet of burp towel 'flowers' at The Craft Patch today! I LOVE this... what a cute gift this would make for someone having a baby boy... and of course pink would look gorgeous, too.   Stop by to see her awesome tutorial on how to make these!!

Girls Diaper Cake @ Decorative Memories
I've been seeing these diaper cakes for a while now.  How cute are they?!  I especially like this one with the brown polka dot ribbon and pink curly ribbons and cute pink duck on top!  She has even been kind enough to show how she made it.  Go here to see the tutorial.

Framed Letter for Baby @ Blue Velvet Chair 

I love this letter C that was made for a lucky baby boy that I found today. I found it at the Blue Velvet Chair and she has even shared the tutorial!   This is made with Photoshop and things that you probably already have around your house and it's super easy to make, too. 

Wash Cloth Roses @ Creative Baby Shower Ideas
You could make a whole bouquet of these pretty wash cloth roses to give at the next baby shower you attend. You could arrange them in a pot or box or wrap them up like a real bouquet with pretty paper and a big bow!  You don't want to miss this tutorial!

I hope that you have found these inspirational.. Of course, they can all be adapted for either boy or girl and you can choose your own embellishments.  I can't wait until my next baby shower invite :)

My friend Sunny sent me these cute toilet paper tube butterflies!  Aren't they sooo cute?!  She also made the chalkboard in the background. Notice the cute matching butterfly cutout in the top pic.  Can you guess how she made this chalkboard?  Chalkboard Contact Paper!!!!   Yes, that's right... contact paper and no messy paint :)  I'm not opposed to the chalkboard paint.. I think it's really neat but I can hardly wait to make some chalkboard crafts of my own with this chalkboard contact paper.  I will update this post with the tutorial for the TP butterflies as soon as she posts it.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you, Sunny for sharing your cute crafts!
